The Last War
The most recent significant event in Eberron is an event called the Last War, so-called because the people of Khorvaire believed that after the war was over everybody would grow tired of war. The Last War was a series of conflicts in Khorvaire over 102 years that began with a dispute over the throne of the Kingdom of Galifar and the ruling of the Five Nations.
Two years prior to the end of the Last War, the nation of Cyre was destroyed in an incident known as the Day of Mourning. This event helped to bring the Last War to an end. Now, the region that was once Cyre is referred to as the Mournland and is the home of living spells, preserved dead bodies, and a militant sect of warforged led by one called the Lord of Blades.
The Last War officially ended approximately two years before the start of the campaign, with the Treaty of Thronehold, as each of the Five Nations and most of the nations that broke off during the war officially became independent.
